Hi! I have 6 guineas, 2 male, 4 female (I think.. haha, well I know theres at least 3 females anyway) and usually I keep them in with my other laying chickens.
It's starting to come onto spring and I still can't find any guinea eggs (I spent a little bit of my afternoon searching through long grass all over where they usually hang out, but to no avail). We've been letting ours free-range most of the time, but I've locked them in the coop with the chickens tonight.
My question is, will the guineas lay in the same nest as the chickens, if there are other eggs in the nest already? They've never layed in there before, but I'm just wondering if it could happen. The nest is quite open.
I'm not sure whether they ARE laying yet or not, but the woman who sold them to us said she found a nest of 20 eggs a few days ago, so I dunno what the go is...
